When that happens, it would be a very exciting moment to me!

Shame about all the ugly buildings in the tower's vicinity.

Still, it will be interesting to see how this and newer supertalls change the skyline.

Ugly buildings nearby will be less noticeable when PA is complete. Like in London when the Shard was completed the ugly buildings near it seemed to fade into insignificance.

Compared to most of the major cities around the world, the buildings surrounding the tower don't look that bad to me. Believe me, there are a lot worse than this!

This is going to be a wonderful addition to the already very impressive Shenzhen skyline - well done, China!

Really? I've been waiting for this for so long! Now the building will start to look like a building and not just a stump (although quite a tall one) with a core. Also, we'll see construction of the spire soon! I wonder how they're going to erect it.

Only the corners are going to taper after this major mechanical floor, the 4 sides will remain vertical for another ~15 or so stories.

Have you seen the residential building, right next to it? But I think it has many more dominant good looking buildings to off-set the ugly ones, all in all, this is a Beautiful City, and the latest photo's show just how tall this has gotten.

448 m. is 97 floors. Top of the core is around 550 m. or 115 fl. Between that top and top out, around 590 m., without spire is only one floor. 115 fl. Between 590 m+ and absolutely top of the building is 60 + meters, but there is not floors. This will be a spire.

2014-July-18 08:53 Shenzhen Daily



The Ping An Finance Center, seen here under construction Tuesday, just became the tallest building in Shenzhen, reaching 448.3 meters by the time of this photo. The structure recently surpassed the 441.8-meter KK 100 building. Upon its expected completion in 2016, the building will be 660m tall with 115 stories, making it the third-tallest building in the world, as well as the tallest in China.
